Why Cloud Computing?

 

 

Trade capital expense for variable expense

Benefit from massive economies of scale

Stop guessing capacity

Instead of having to invest heavily in data centers and servers before you know how you’re going to use them, you can use cloud computing and only pay when you consume computing resources, and only pay for how much you consume. By using cloud computing, you can achieve a lower variable cost than you can get on your own. Because usage from hundreds of thousands of customers are aggregated in the cloud, cloud computing providers such as Amazon Web Services can achieve higher economies of scale which translates into lower pay as you go prices. Eliminate guessing on your infrastructure capacity needs. When you make a capacity decision prior to deploying an application, you often either end up sitting on expensive idle resources or dealing with limited capacity. With Cloud Computing, these problems go away. You can access as much or as little as you need, and scale up and down as required with only a few minutes notice.

Increase speed and agility

Stop spending money on running and maintaining data centers

Go global in minutes

In a cloud computing environment, new IT resources are only ever a click away, which means you reduce the time it takes to make those resources available to your developers from weeks to just minutes. This results in a dramatic increase in agility for the organization, since the cost and time it takes to experiment and develop is significantly lower. Focus on projects that differentiate your business, not the infrastructure. Cloud computing lets you focus on your own customers, rather than on the heavy lifting of racking, stacking and powering servers. With Cloud Computing, you can easily deploy your application in multiple regions around the world with just a few clicks. This means you can provide a lower latency and better experience for your customers simply and at minimal cost.
